a youth lead non-profit wants you to be an ocean ambassador means taking action in your own life to help the ocean and to spread the word to those around you. We believe we need to “live like we love the ocean” no matter where we live.
Our oceans are turning into a plastic soup. 5 Gyres Institute is a nonprofit with a mission to conduct research and communicate about the global impact of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans and employ strategies to eliminate the accumulation of plastic pollution in the 5 subtropical gyres.
